Despite the challenges

If you’re never wrong, you’ll never be right. Rightness is a function of the mistakes you make.

If you’re not making a mistake, you’re making a mistake. Failure is just another data point.

Bottling stress only exacerbates it. Writes psychologist Susan David: “When you say, “I’m stressed,” you conflate your whole self (I am = all of me) with the emotion.”

Conformity relinquishes uniqueness. “Uniformity and freedom are incompatible.”

Time travelers can change the course of history with a sneeze.

Apps are short-term solutions. You can’t medicate your problems away with them, nor Adderall for that matter.

A start is means nothing without the finish. Said Garp, “You only grow by coming to the end of something and by beginning something else.”

Doing good can be problematic. Teju Cole quotes John Berger: “A singer may be innocent; never the song.”

And so forth.

If you're an WRITER or aspiring blogger, I highly recommend creating your own blog and publishing something new every day (read my post on how to set up a FREE blog on Wordpress).
